His Musical background includes playing Drums, Writing, Performing, Producing, Rapping as well as (of course) Dee Jaying. His Father & Step Father were Musicians so Listening, Performing & Playing Music only came natural. The name “DJ REMIX” came as a result of what He was already doing while growing up in Los Angeles. He would always record his Idol Dr. Dre and other great West Coast Pioneer Dee Jays Mixing on L.A.’s Historic 1580am KDAY. With no Turntables available, Cassettes were it for everything. Extending songs and also creating his own Breaks from Old School Classics and whatever Music was around. Having been buying 12 Inches since age 7 years old, He also inherited Records from his Great Grandmother and others. He would read the Music Credits on albums even before understanding them not knowing that he was being Educated. One day he happen to pick up “My Philosophy” by Boogie Down Productions and the credits read “Remixed by Kenny Parker”. Since his original DJ name didn’t really express him, the word “Remixed” caught his attention. Crossing out the “E” but keeping everything else began “DJ REMIX D”.
No one really knew he was as a Dee Jay even though he was always at home practicing his craft but in High School all that began to change. People started to hear “DJ REMIX D” Rhyming at Lunch Time and see “DJ REMIX” Mixing at School Dances, Raves & House Party’s. He and a friend who shared the same talents decided to come together calling themselves K.M.A. They did Shows and other stuff but never made it big. Regardless they always Dee Jayed because that was actual Money made. As time passed on he began to Dee Jay more in and around the Greater Los Angeles area.
He wanted more than to just be a Club DJ, he wanted a career in Radio. By doing a few DJ Battles he get more recognition. Also joining (l.a.'s historical) Impact Record Pool set him up having the exact same Versions of music played on Radio at the same time they were played. He studied how Mix Shows were sounding and produced then took notes on what equipment was used to slowly began accumulating it himself.
Relocating from California to Arizona in 2002 allowed him to do something that was extremely hard to do in L.A. The first Station anywhere to have a Mix played by “DJ REMIX” (the infamous 1) was KAJM MEGA-99.3/104.3 in Phx early 2003. That year he slowly established himself through networking. At the same time another DJ who also had recently relocated there (dj tyger) was doing the same thing and they hooked up. Meeting up at DJ Battles and create routines together made them awesome. They would do 4 Turntable Shows for everything including House Parties, Clubs, Fashion Shows and MIX CD’s. Eventually they found a way into POWER 92.3’s Friday Nite Flavas and were invited to do the Show later in the Year.
The following year 2004 marked the Anniversary Death of Eazy E and DJ REMIX was invited back to do a Tribute Show. In time his networking got him in contact with an On Air Personality who happened to be on in Phoenix & Tucson opposite shifts everyday and so he began driving to Tucson on Fridays to Mix on KGMG MEGA-106.3/104.9. Still wanting more he Enrolled into The Academy of Radio & Broadcasting in Phoenix. While in school he again went back to Tucson to Interview for KOHT HOT-98 and became a Weekend Personality/Board Op courtesy of R DUB (his first official boss).
